As part of Cal Performances’ 2020/21 Illuminations“Music and the Mind” programming, soprano Renée Fleming presents a combination discussion-performance as part of her ongoing creative collaborations with researchers, scholars, and scientists. Fleming has made the relationship between music and the human brain the subject of much of her recent work, and in 2020 launched a live-streamed series of conversations with leaders and practitioners working at the intersection of music, neuroscience, and healthcare. In this special recital/presentation, with musicians to be announced as well as with UC Berkeley Professor of Neuroscience Ehud Isacoff, PhD, Fleming offers insights into music’s potential for healing and transformation, performing musical selections with piano accompaniment from her repertoire.

This performance is part of Cal Performances’ 202021 Illuminations: Music and the Mind series.
